Three years ago, in the case where an employee of a precious metal purchase shop was robbed of about 80 million yen on the streets of Akasaka, Tokyo, he instructed other men to attack the criminal and was charged with robbery and other crimes for stealing cash. Regarding the defendant, the Tokyo District Court pointed out that "it is not admitted that he ordered the crime," and sentenced him to acquittal of the robbery-murder.
On the other hand, when he received a job question, he was sentenced to 10 months in prison for obstructing the duties of a police officer.
Defendant Ryo Inoue (29), whose address and occupation are unknown, was robbed of a carry bag containing about 80 million yen by an employee of a precious metal purchase shop on the streets of Akasaka, Tokyo in 2019. He was accused of robbery and other charges for stealing cash by instructing the men.
In the judgment on the 29th, Ryuta Asaka, the judge of the Tokyo District Court, said, "The testimony of the accomplice that he was instructed by the defendant has changed an important part. It is possible to tell a lie to lighten his sentence. I can't trust it because it's sexual. "
In addition, he found the testimony of another accomplice unreliable and acquitted the robbery-murder, saying that "the defendant was not found to have ordered the crime."
Meanwhile, he was sentenced to 10 months in prison for obstructing the execution of public affairs, alleging that he interfered with the duties of police officers when he was questioned in Saitama Prefecture last year.
Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office "Thoroughly consider the content of the decision and take appropriate measures"
Regarding the partial acquittal, Hiroshi Morimoto, Deputy Prosecutor of the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office, commented, "I would like to thoroughly consider the content of the judgment and take appropriate measures."
